Kyle Freimuth is a junior with an International Food and Resource Economics major at the University of Florida with deep roots in agriculture. His father’s family were dairy farmers and his mother taught Agriculture for 30 years. He has spent the last three years conducting research trials at UF’s Plant Science Research and Education unit near his home in Citra, Fl. His time working at the PSREU has furthered his passion and curiosity towards the science of agricultural innovation and he hopes to use his perspectives gained through the Challenge 2050 Project to impact the progress needed to feed a growing population sustainably.
With a strong background in Future Farmers of America and 4-H Kyle has been immersed with passionate leaders and great stewards of the land and wants to emulate these traits throughout his career in the field of agriculture. He sees the value in international businesses working towards sustainable solutions across the globe and is extremely excited to learn more about these efforts through his internship with HM Clause this summer. Through his involvement in the Challenge 2050 Project he has honed in on food waste as being the biggest issue. Through professional engagement and creative thinking he hopes to find a solution.
